Abstract

Discusses the re‐appraisal of precautions against Legionnaires′ disease required by the publication of official advice documents in 1991. Considers the relevant legislation, response to an outbreak, consequences of breach, the Code of Practice, identification of responsibility, and the HSE Guidance Note. Surmises that a clear preventive policy is essential to comply with the new legislation, which provides ample guidance to develop suitable programmes.
